Loose Tenons Finished

Monday, June 15th, 2015

All of my mortises and loose tenon stock are ready for assembly.  All that’s needed is to taper the legs and round over a few edges.

Double loose tenons.  Really happy with the fit.

Mistake, oh no!

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Ok – Confession time. I made my first mistake on this build (last?), but it was easy to fix.

I mistakenly had the wrong edge down when making the second mortise in one of the rails for my double loose tenons. This resulted in the mortises being too close together. I took a deep breathe and made the mortise in the correct spot. I filled the mistake mortise in order to strengthen the walls between the mortises.

The mistake will be hidden and nobody will ever know. Keep it on the down low!
